I can’t remember the last time I made a New Year’s Resolution. It’s just something I don’t believe in doing. If I have something I want to change in my life I tend to try to make that change in the moment rather than scheduling it for sometime in the future. I’ve been told that I am in the minority in that regard.
There are many benefits to creating New Year’s Resolutions even beyond the resolutions themselves. The tricky part is following through with your resolutions after they’ve been made. It’s almost become a bit of a joke about people not sticking to their resolutions and that flippancy may be to our own detriment. I believe that we should really think out our resolutions before we try to enact them.
Many times we don’t succeed in our resolutions because we don’t properly plan. You need to have a clear understanding of what you are trying to achieve and how to achieve it before you begin. This is why New Year’s Resolutions made on a whim ever work out.
Creating a plan in advance can help you succeed. I work with my clients to design their visions and goals and we always look three months out. If you think you can make a major lifestyle change in a day it will usually not work.
Really think about the “Why” in regards to your resolutions before you try to commit to it. If you’re serious about it but have a history of not succeeding reach out to someone who can help you achieve your goals. There’s no reason to go it alone.
